Pastor Kenny Gracia stops by the podcast to talk about fronting on my chick, why people love him so much, living on his own at 17, Orwellian school spirit, finding faith through his parents' sobriety, relapse, the Hill Kids, maintaining friendships with atheists, admonishment, promising to never become holier-than-thou, youth group, open and closed handed issues, cherrypicking from the Bible, pacifism, the wonder of creation, the difference between love and tolerance, reading Grandma Wishes in Target, and crying while pooping.

Composer Larry Delinger stops by the podcast to talk about his interest in alternative music, which end of the screwdriver to look at, the imaginary hierarchy of art, his favorite cover of Creep, the era when music was good (hint: ALWAYS), hopping a milk train to Lincoln, Nebraska to see Dave Brubeck, learning to read music by using the words 'Mexico' and 'popsicle', taking piano lessons in a quaking train station, the time Edward Applebaum called him a composer, jumping into the deep end, the 205 volumes of the daily journal he's kept since 1963, taking in the beauty of a sunset, walking on the balls of your feet, Zen Buddhism, the day he spent with Gary Snyder, dragging up pain, experiencing yourself, how trees see time, and the taste of Pablum.
